isHexString( value )

Tests whether a string contains only hexadecimal digits.

var bool = isHexString( '0123456789abcdefABCDEF' );

  • For non-string values, the function returns false.
  • The function does not recognize x (as in the standard 0x prefix).

var isHexString = require( '@stdlib/assert/is-hex-string' );

var out = isHexString( '0123456789abcdefABCDEF' );
// returns true

out = isHexString( '' );
// returns false
